The Brother Knights of Potomac Council #433 are a group of committed Catholic gentlemen who seek to serve their parish and the local DC community through faith in action. Our council serves two parishes in the heart of Washington, DC, St. Matthew's Cathedral and St. Patrick's in the City.

Together, we are a group of over 300 men who work each and every day to not only better themselves, but also better our community.

Join us today and you too can make a difference along with us and the nearly 2 million Brother Knights worldwide as we put our Catholic faith into action in service to God and country.
